Subject: Rain Falling Down
The Magic of The Grateful Dead was in full force at this show. The second set, as soon as the opened with "Rain" the water fell from the sky! It poured buckets! It was as if the rain was part of the show.
I'm listening to a lot of 90's shows recently & there are some gems. Vince's high backing vocals are a bit much sometimes, but I'm happy to hear these shows again & not have to deal with with the drunks & frat turds that spoiled a lot of shows for me.
Thank you Jerry! 20 years gone....

C'mon people this is the GD, how bad can it be? The reviews from folks going back and forth and being critical of the city they played in are ridiculous. That's not the spirt of the GD.

The setlist admittedly is not my favorite, though I enjoy most all songs played. The recording, not so clean but it does evoke memories from a magical day and preserves music from that evening. Good show but not a great one.

The total experience was exceptional. I wound up parking in the same lot coincidentally as a friend at the time, who all these years later remains my very best friend. Totally unplanned. The Rain Set was improvisation at it's finest. I *think* we may have seen a rainbow that evening too. That beautiful moon after the rain and those sweet sounds that filled the air. I'll never forget seeing Jerry on the big screen during SOTM. That memory was burned into my mind the moment it happened and remains all these years later. The total experience was unlike any other Dead show I'd ever been to before that. Sadly, this would be my last and one of the last ever. Hard to believe it's been 20 years.

NE HOO....

95 is 95. No offense to all of you who love these shows from 95. There may have been a good song, or a good lick, or Bobby or Phil may have belted out something to get the crowds going for a moment or two.

This is not very good all in all though. Just my personal opinion. I went to shows, last one was in Eugene in 94....and that was barely ok.

I do think that if you grew up and this was your era.....than it was much better than a day at work. However for me, at this time in my Dead evolution...starting in 75....i needed a good dance, some great vibes and for them to smoke it!!!

Just didn't see much of that in the 90's sorry...

Right there with you leejenk. First and last. Was in a marital situation that left no room for dead shows prior. Bought the Harley and was going to really hit the road for the later portion of the tour. Doesn't matter though, after this show, i bore the mark as plain as day. Thankfully their are generous sorts on this website that are willing to fill in gaps for me and paint a picture of the experience. The rain experience was nothing less than pure magic at this show. Will have the memory for the rest of my life. Bobby put on some pants already will you? (~);}

Subject: ONE AND DONE
Though I was born in 1954, I came on the bus rather later in life. I remember the Dead's 1st album and much liked it. Then my brother told me of a show he saw at Ohio Unvirsity in Athens in 1968. Was a free show, they had played in Columbus, Ohio the night before. Turns out this was the 1st Tom Constanten show. My brother told me they played at least 4 hrs. He rembered 2 drummers and 2 keyboards; and he even swears to this day somebody with a tuba was onstage with them too. Alas, no recording of this show has been found. A pity.
As for the Three Rivers show, was my 1st and last show. My oldest son and a friend of mine got to the parking lot early, fired up our grill thru the day before and after the show had steaks, shrimp, burgers and plenty of cold beer. We had competeing Nitrous tanks close to the parking spot we had; and I remember some dudes cracking down on T-shirt selling in the lot. When i spied them after a recent bust, with their hands full of T-shirts, I fake staggered up to them and said, "Hey man! Are you selling shirts? Can I buy one?" They were not amused.
Our seats were at the back of the infield, and I remember the sound wasn't great. My son was mesmerized by SOTM, and to this day raves about that version. I enjoyed the raucous sound of Gloria, a suprprise encore.
The RAIN start of the second set was neat, and when we got back to the lotI had wisely brought a change of clothes and a towe, I simply undressed in front of the crowd, dried off and fired the grill back up. We didn't leave the lot til 4am.
Contrary to others who remind that this should be only a "music" review, I disagree. Having devoured everything I can read about the Dead since that 1st and only concert, it is obvious that the "whole" experience was essential to the show, and more importantly to the band.
I claim no objective review of either the recording or the experience. Was simply a divine event for me, my son and my friend.

Yeah it's been that long since my last dead show. I'm playing the sweet FOB (not sure if this is THE FOB or not, as I'm too into the DRUMZ to compare sound quality at the moment) to mark the occastion. A little less than 3 minutes into drumz Mickey goes nuts. Love it. Very good show, for 95, obviously.

Not sure who you saw fall that night; there were 3 people from what I understand that fell. I fell from the 3rd tier or 4th tier down to the first approx. 30 feet. I had brown dreads and was only 18; so you very well could have seen me fall. From what I understand there were no females that fell that night or jumped however you want to put it. I'm ok. Broke my back and just about every other bone in my body but am doing fine; walking and that good stuff. Hell of a show though right? How bout that Rain! Anyway cheers for asking and go Padres...

Subject: not to shabby....
All the reviews raved about the 2nd set. I just finished listening to the 1st set and think it was pretty good for '95. Truth be told, good song selection [even Bobby's cheesy spin on Take Me To The River], tightly played, and some nice work by Jerry. Not those searing soaring solos of the 70's through '87 or so, but quick paced, sweetly and soulfully played. Maybe it's my now 53 year old ears, but there's something soothing to the tone of Jerry's guitar on this one. In any event, if someone played the HIAB or Birdsong or West LA Fadeaway, or even Promised Land, I'm guessing '93 or '94 before I'm guessing '95.

Well, off to listen to the 2nd set [other than Samba in the Rain - -the least painful of Vince's tunes, but still a struggle for me!!!]. Hope the set is as good as reviews suggest. If not, I'll be back with an amendment to my comments.

No rating b/c you can't rate a show unless you were there to soak in the vibe. Or in this case, the rain!!!

The downpour started as soon as the boys busted into the 4 rain songs to start the 2nd set. When the rain stopped, they went into a nice terrapin. You had to be there to understand. Pretty good for a '95 show. I'll give it a 4 just for the rain phenomenon. RIP Jer!

Yes it rained. Yes Rusted Root opened. And yes, this show was in Pittsburgh. All 3 of the aforementioned items should have dictated the kind of show we were about to get, but in all actuality it was not that bad, considering the time period. I do specifically remember the MASSIVE showing Pittsburgh's Finest made; i have never before seen so many cops inside a show. Looked like the entire force was there. And they almost arrested me and some other degenerates for smoking a bowl in the seats. Second set listenable. 2 stars for '95, which is saying a lot.

First dead show , my older brother took me and we had a blast. Sat way up in nose bleed section but was still exellent. I was a freshem in highschool and loved every minute of it. The rain , rain song, samba and box was something I still talk about. I got on the bus and still get on from time to time.
We are both old now and to involved in careers to get on again but the memories never fade

Subject: Consistency Near the End
Here's a great Dead show.

It's '95, and the band, when on, can still make magic happen. This is not the same transcendence of earlier years, perhaps. But on another note, because Jerry hasn't the strength to spare, he plays every moment as though his life depends on it.

Fortunately, for this night, the band turns in a great performance start to fin, culminating in SOTM.

On another tour, this may be an average show. But for this tour, it's a great show. Put in it's historical perspective, this show is awesome. The band does not hold back one bit, and they play as though they'd been rehearsing. Another week and a half and that was it.

I think reviews such as yours really show cockyness and arrogance. I think by 1995 the Band has put there heart and soul into 1000 of shows for the world to enjoy and to leave us with lasting memories and a greatplace to escape the rest of the world. You should be grateful that Jerry was around to play these songs EVEN if they were great for only a short peak. Your an idiot I hope you never get to here another show again! As far as Jerry Blowing SOTM, I wonder what how you would do with your version of it. Blow it with your lips!!

Subject: A Good One!
This was my last show and a good one at that. On the bus ride into Pittsburg I met a girl who was also traveling to the show. She said she wanted to hear Bird Song and I said I hoped for a SOTM (one of the few tunes you could count on being good during this time). We parted ways in the lot but it looks like we both got what we wished for. I initially walked away from this show a little unimpressed due to various factors (poor seats, just saw all of the "rain" songs at RFK, etc.). However, I did feel the power in that SOTM (maybe the best of several I witnessed) and the Gloria encore was nice. However, after listening to this show over again in recent years I wish I would have paid a bit more attention. First set is tight with good versions of virtually every tune. Set Two is short on lenghty jams but Garcia plays and sings well and the entire set flows along nicely. Better audience sources of this show exist but I sure would love to find a soundboard!

Subject: SOTM
I have read the reviews about the alleged "HUGE" SOTM so i went back and listened again.Yeah,Garcia sure does go off at the end with guitar and vocals,but i have said this many times before.Jerry would Blow a ballad like SOTM,Stella,DEW etc....and think he could make up for it by going off at the end,which by this time(95)was seemingly scripted.Many fell for the trick,i didnt.I like the WHOLE SOTM(one of my favorite songs)and i must say this one is Garbage leading up to the *Climax*.You want a good top to bottom standing?go to 6-7-91.Its the best Standing on the Moon ever done.Loser toothless Steeler fans everywhere

This was my last show in my home town. I was on the floor on Phil's side. Bird song was great, the guys were really on this night for a 95 show. When jerry told the heavens to rain down on Pittsburgh, then played 4 Rain titled songs in a row tells me that the Dead were the most accommodating rock,folk,jazz,Band ever to grace the stage. Terrapin was also a wonderful treat for this night. Great summer show all around and great sound as well.

Ok let me start by saying this was my 100 th show and the time i had was unforgettable. First i had a shirt that a friend of mine made for me that said it was my 100 th show with realy cool design and with that shirt every dead head let me up to the front in time for the second set. Lightning and thunder scorched the sky and out came Rain rain and more rain the thickest you can imagine. I remember by terrapin there was a mist on stage that was very trippy.Worth a listen and one of my fav of the last tweenty shows of jerry's life.
Reviewer: keyshawn_ramblin - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - August 15, 2007
Subject: it's unfortunate..
the negativity and moaning about this show. it's a fact the dead weren't what they were in 60s 70s and 80s during 1995. however, there were moments that brought young and old together in a way no other band could hope to. i am glad the vast majority hold those moments as sacred and wonderful, and i hope the others that feel the need to post the negativity rethink their motives behind doing so.........

the timing of the rain and 2nd set has been told well by many...i echo the same excitement and memories. the kind of memories that make you feel great and sad at the same time. the kind of memories that give you chills and make your heart ache at the same time. i will only add a couple more...

1. the terrapin and the rising moon. as the rain came to a stop earlier in the set, i (maybe 15 feet from front-center) began to see a glowing behind the stage. as the band went through llr, and began terrapin, the light grew as the moon rose behind the stage. all of us soaking wet were almost awestruck, i think. soaking wet, probably cold, but lost in a night only the dead could be a part of. magical really. a solid version of the song, not overwhelming, but beautiful in it's simplicity is you listen to the musical interludes during and after.

2. the blues hit home. after a relatively tame space, bobby comes out strumming an ultra bluesy miracle. now, this is a decent recording, but it does lack the depth of phil's bass that my buddy's aud version doesn't. the miracle may be slow, but if you were at this show, phil's bass rammed through you as he punched the off-beats as if he wanted to turn pittspuke (cleveland fan here) stadium to rubble. the slowest most bluesy version of this song i've heard. turn the bass up, and blast this through some decent speakers and enjoy.

3. not to mention gloria...heh heh.

5 stars for the experience................

Subject: You had to be there!!!!
Upon listening to this show, if I wasn't there, I would not give it a second thought. But, thank God I was there. I travelled there with all my closest friends and my little, 17 year old brother. It was hot and sticky, but that didn't deter anything. All that mattered to me was that I was seeing my favorite band with my best friends.
I am getting goose bumps and tears just writing this 12 years later. The four rain songs into terrapin was awesome. The standing on the moon was so damn good, with Jerry singing at the end, and the wind blowing post rain and his projection on the big screens is just something I will never forget. It was the best concert I have ever been. I have seen the Dead countless times, Pink Floyd in 94, CS&N, and so many concerts, this is the best one on my list, followed by the Dead at Blossom music center in Ohio in 2004. Both concerts were two of the absolute best times and memories I have to this day.
This is one of those shows, if you weren't there, it's nothing special. If you were there, you saw some very special Grateful Dead moments right near there end.
Reviewer: lazyriverhead - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 7, 2007
Subject: Moments that cannot be repeated
I stared up at the sky when my eyes would let me and saw a big circle of the stadium top...dark grey clouds filled the sky, and lightning went right through the middle ( I swear, instant steal your face in the sky, incredible) The band was either backstage looking at some wheather radar or something magical really happened.( I prefer the latter) The took awhile to start the second set, rumblings in the sky indicated it just may rain, Garcia called out Rain and the minute he did big fat raindrops fell. Not just rain, the kind that gets you soaked in like 3 seconds and Jerry and the band played on. In my condition, with good friends all around in the whole stadium for that matter, at that moment, I felt true magic. Listening to this show does not do any justice for how intense that moment was. Sure i have some hot shows that blow this away, but looking back i only got to see 12 shows and this and 1 at Richfield Coliesum in Ohio was the best. I give this show a highest rating not so much for the fat jams, cause there really werent any, but for the phat time I had that cannot be taken away.

Subject: Not a bad show
Just listened to this for the first time...not a barn burner, but certainly not a throwaway show either. The "rain" series was good..I almost even enjoyed "Samba" which IMO is the worst song ever played by the Grateful Dead..just doesn't fit them and I'm sure that's Vince's influence..but..all in all a short but enjoyable show.

One thing that strikes me as I listen to these 95's is that it always seems that Bobby is holding back from really cutting loose for fear of Mr Garcia not being able to keep up..

The timing of the rain right after the second seat began was surreal. Only at a Dead show..This was my last show. Hearing the boards from the summer got me pretty down.

Subject: Nice Audiance Version
I like audiance tapes, though the quality tends to suffer, to get the sense of the crowd. As you read through the tread, you see that the folks that were at the show, add some details to the background. I thought the show was good. This is my first rating, though certainly not my first listen. I was on a search for the best SOTM and got caught up listening to the whole show (thereby giving me the right to rate the show). More often than not, like some of you, I'm sure, I listen to the entire show and don't rate it.

Last side note, whenever I heard SOTM in concert, I would turn the head next to me (at the end of the tune) and say, "I think he'd rather be w/ us." I wasn't at this show but, I say to you reading this, "I think he'd rather be w/ us."

Subject: Buckets of Rain Buckets of tears
Here it is Jerry's birthday and I'm reviewing THIS show. Go figure huh? The beautiful genius in full decline manages to get off a few good licks in this one but there is a distinct lack of jamming and taking of chances. That being said it is more listenable in terms of band performance than much of '95 summer tour. The Terrapin is average. Drums and Space are great and were often highlights of '95 for me, anyway. Nice to hear West LA although compared to the blistering versions of years past (I caught a rainswept knockout West LA at Alpine in '89 that damn near blew me off the hill) it merely doesn't suck.

The sound just ain't great and this is the tape I have had since '95. I have a recording of the Three Rivers '90 gig that my friend taped that truly rocks so I know what can be done in that stadium even in the rain. Fact is though, much of the audience recordings from about '92 on were less than stellar and that's being kind. Not unlike the band they were taping. I know what was up with the band but not the tapers. What happened?

I'm glad all who were there had such a great time. I too had a blast at my '95 shows (Seattle/Portland) but the magic was well gone. Now the magic's in our hearts. Thank you Jerry and all the rest of you boys and girls gone or still here. What a great and never ending gift to us all. Many thanks.

On the drive up from Frederick, MD my bus' fuel filter was clogging on all of the uphill portions of RT68. I managed to limp to a family friends farm outside of Flintstone & had them drive us to Cumberland (Blues), MD & rent a car. Traffic was TERRIBLE getting to 3 Rivers. Meager supply of DANKNESS had me looking EVERYWHERE!!! But alas, no luck. Police presence seemed a little thick to me...anyone else? Watched 3 bacon samiches "raid" an RV---sad...
Our seats were maybe 10-15 rows out from between Phil & Bob---Thanks GDTS!!! Went to get sustenance & walking back with an ARMFUL of Hot Dogs, a Large drink & a ?pretzel? through the throngs on the floor I came to a bottleneck in one of the isles. Then, just like Moses parting the Red Sea, the crowd opened up to an empty circle 10ft around me, and laying on the ground at my feet was 1/4oz (at least) of some rather supreme nugs. I couldn't believe it!!! Sharing the wealth, my wife & I turned on everyone within 10ft of our seats---then what always seemed to be a great show opener HIAB started, going into WLAFA. Eventough we'd heard several of the "Rain" songs previously At RFK, it was MAGICAL to hear all of these played in the context of this situation---they REALLY did make it rain HARD when breaking out into the Beatles "Rain"...
While others opinions of the bands ability to perform well may vary, I had a GREAT TIME at what I did not know was going to be the last time I'd see The Grateful Dead & Jerry Garcia. There have been too few "legends in their own time," but Jerry was definetly one of them. This band still gives me goosebumps when listening to those moments when they turned straw into GOLD!!!
Happy Birthday Jerry, we miss you immensely!!!

Let me go out on a limb and say that it was raining in the second set. That novelty must have been tired at this point. You must of prayed for clear days during this tour as not to get the stock song selection. Overall safe bet as far as 95's go. Agree with tito that SOTM isn't that epic. plus I hated it as a closer.

To roaddawg, I agree that jerry did actually make it rain this night. This way he could noodle through 4 tunes in the second set that he could play in his sleep, that have no jamming or improvisational roads to explore. 2 1/2 rosebuds for this one.

My last, and the first that i got to see with my younger brother. Even before the boys started tuning, he asked what the opener would be, I looked straight at him and said "Hell in a Bucket". Imagine his (my) suprise when I was right. (dumb luck really).

Solid considering how 95 had gone, and remember, in hindsight we can all say how "bad" summer 95 was, but only becuase we didnt have a chance to see them any better after that. And venue might have something to do with it.....I will take an average show at Alpine, or Deer Creek, over the cement and steel of Three Rivers....that was a bad sports stadium, long before it was a bad music venue.

That show was my last with my good buddy ShlepRock. We saw the show from an aluminum section, a row or two above the dugout section. All the other reviewers are so correct, boy did it RAIN. Not only from the sky but from the boys on stage. So, somewhere in the middle of Samba and Looks Like Rain we realized that the aluminum thing we were standing on began to fill up with water. We were dancing in water up to our lower thighs, and it kept falling down to us in the lower section of the crazy lighting attractor we were having one of the most memorable greatest show EVER. I really loved after all the crazy rain, they went into Terrapin Station. This, for me, made the show a 5 star, INSPIRATION!

I listen to this recording alot, I think the quality is absolutely fantastic. The crystal clear sound quality really brings back the memories that have been dulled over time. Excellent AUD.

So me and one of the mama's i was traveling with just searched all day up till rusted root was about to open.
It was close to 100 out and i was on close to 100.

We got our miracles and the usher took one look at us and sent us to the floor.

Was 10 rows out and swear you could have powered a city with the energy in there that night.

6/7/91 is my favorite . . Garcia sounding like Roger Daltrey in the final verse. Incredible impassioned singing . . and in tune. 9/10/91 . . the branford one is also amazing . but less emotional. And this one . . perhaps because it is the last one . . or perhaps because Garcia sings and plays his guts out . . despite the crudeness . . he digs down deeeeeeeeeeeep.

Great "RAIN" and "BOR" too.

This was my last show, and my little brother's first. I have to say it was not only an energetic performance, but one of the best times on lot that I have had in a while up to that point. Alot of the guys from Rusted Root (who opened the show) were jammin their asses off under the bridge down by the river, so I brought five or six djembes that I was selling down and let people standin around or dancing tear into em'. I broke out old betsy, and what followed was probablly the most hypnotic transitory drum circle I've been a part of on the east coast. People went completely foamin at the mouth freakin bat shit funky. I thought that would top the evening off, and the boys would have a hard time trying to bring any medicine stronger than that..........I should have known better because I WAS FREAKIN WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! About 10 min before the second set I was right down in the Phil zone about 10 feet away from the stage with my brother,(startin to feel really, REALLY right) and I called that they were going to play Rain from the Beatles. Either I guessed right or they heard me because as soon as they started belting out RAIN! RAIN! and the rain started comin down I looked over at my brother's big dialated face and a big smile overtook the both of us an we started gettin down in an invoulentary dance that absolutely overtook everyone I saw. PURE MAGIC. CLEAN VIBRATIONS. THE GRATEFUL DEAD. I think that was the first time that they played all the freakin rain songs in a row. I THINK IT AMAZED THEM TOO! All in all it was nothing short of a perfect last show for me. I even ground scored a Marlboro Zippo lighter right down in front as I was walking out. If anyone out there lost it, I still have that old freakin thing.

Last show. What a trip. The rain. The timing. The Grateful Dead. Good show from 95. Good aud from a bad place to record as well as in bad weather.

The SOTM is worth the download. I would go so far as to call it epic.

As far as the incident I was on the other side and I did not see or hear a thing about it. But that is not good. What a bad thing to happen and see at a show. Ugh.

No one died at RFK. All survived.

Many will bash as another '95 throwaway. Please listen to the SOTM before you pass judgement on this show and Largeman.

To each their own.

Subject: My last show
... and I wish it'd been better. No 95 show can possibly get better than 2 stars from me, maybe 3 if I feel really generous. That said, the first set was fairly solid, with a nicely jammed Birdsong - at least until Jerry started playing the same riff over and over ala Let It Grow 87-89. The second set was a major disappointment. Rain and Box of Rain were fine, but Samba was totally limp compared to 3-17-95, the only other version I'd heard. When they went into Looks Like Rain, I remember groaning, "Do they have to play every rain song in their repertoire?" The rain had stopped by the start of Samba. At least the Terrapin was solid, but I Need a Geritol was even worse than usual, played at an ultra slow, lounge tempo. I felt scandalized, like I'd just been in a strip club. Fortunately, Standing on the Moon brought some life back, and Gloria had me wondering why they didn't play it out of drums instead of Geritol or (I wish it were)The Last Time.

Don't waste your time with anything from 95 unless it was your last show or something. Check out 68-70, 72-74, 76-77, or fall 89 through fall 91. That's the real stuff!

Edited to say: Keep in mind that I would probably put the best Dave Matthews show ever at a 2 on this scale and a Gwen Stefani show at minus 1000. A Dead show is still a Dead show.

This show was the last time I saw Jerry. Everyone can say they have seen better shows, but as far as the atmosphere and the tune selection, this is right up there. I have to say if you weren't there, you may not get what you want out of this show, but if you were there, like me, the memories will start flowing back. This show will bring a smile and sometimes bring you tears of what used to be. My friends and I had so much fun at this show that the sight of our tents floating in water after the show, didn't stop us from singing and dancing til the morning came around.

Reviewer: Btopia - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 1, 2004
Subject: Dancin in the Rain....
More often than not, it was damn painful seeing the Dead in '95. We witnessed the inevitable "end of the road" at almost every show it seems. Jerry was sick and mostly uninspired with few exceptions. Vince made my ears bleed and the only thing worse than a Vince tune was when aliens would kidnap Phil Lesh and make him sing "Wave to the Wind". It still gives me chills and nightmares. You try not to be a critic, but its tough fooling your ears into hearing the previously experienced majesty of the Deads music when its just not there.

That stated, the 3 River Stadium show from '95 was one of the best times I've had at a Dead show. With exception to the dead guy we saw who overdosed at the hotel, the bolt of lightning that almost electricuted our hacky sack circle, and the fat nude dude who was streaking down the middle of the road, it was a wonderful day.

I was with good company, 8 good friends, all of us had floor seats, and the lot was full of all kinds of good people. You have to love Pittsburgh. Even the shitty weather didnt phase us much. The local band Rusted Root opened, one of the few opening acts I'd seen who could get an entire stadium up and dancing feverishly. These guys were amazing. I was somewhat nervous when the Dead came out, wondering how well Jerry was feeling and if he'd make it through the tour. The 1st set was notable for its West LA which was very groovy, an incredible "Take Me to the River" which had the crowd amped, and a lovely "Bird Song". I say lovely because many of the Bird Songs from 94/95 were more on the wicked, twisted, and evil side.

We were getting psyched for the 2nd set when the boys came out. Almost as if on queue, they opened with the Beatles' "RAIN" at the exact same moment the weather came crashing down on us. It was truly amazing, as though they were controlling the weather. We were drenched to the bone and simply did not care. As a matter of fact, being rained on that night during "Rain" was fantastic. The weather was relentless and the music kept us happily wet. The audience tapes are MUCH better than the boards of this show, mostly because they demonstrate how well the band, music, and heads all blended together so cohesively. The boards also demonstrate how horrible the singing was, including an assortment of missed lyrics, lots of mubbling, and overall lack of harmony. This nice audience recording was as I heard it that night, focused on the great music and the joyful crowd, preventing the need to be the critic no one wants to be.

After "Rain" all the other Rain related tunes came out, including a nice "Box of Rain" with Phil smiling at the crowd, a bummer Samba in the Rain with Vince in his cheddar glory, a standard Looks Like Rain (Bobby just cant stand it!), and a beautiful Terrapin into Drumz. Who would ever think that "Standing on the Moon" would be a good 2nd set closer? Listen to this version and you'll understand why. One of my favorite versions of the tune with Jerry going off at the end just the way we liked him to.

Many shows were plagued in '95, including the deaths at RFK, the horrible accidents in St.Louis, the gate crashes that killed Deer Creek, and the Jerry death threats that bummed everyone out. A lot of the BS was mostly due to the "lot rot" vagabonds without tickets ruining the fun for everyone. I saw more "dreadier than thou" wannabes in '95 begging for tickets in their expensive Columbia jackets, Patagonia backpacks, and brand new Birks, often right in front of their tour-BMWs. I left more shows bummed than jazzed in '95, and was sad enough to sell my Phil Zone seats for the final show at Soldier Field. Fortunately, I had my experience at 3 River Stadium, a show I remember as my final night of fun with the boys. Thanks ARCHIVE for hosting!!!

Subject: RAIN!! WATER!! BUCKETS POURING!!!
excellent show for summer 1995. the first set is pretty well played. a nice bucket west LA to open up and jerry sounds refreshed. for me bird song was the first set highlight and promised rocked us into intermission. during the break it started to rain and a few rumbles of thunder. the lights go down and the boys return to the stage. i didnt have a watch but it seemed like 10-15 minuets went by as they tuned up. i could see all the boys smiling like they had something up their sleeve. with the rain already falling the dead stepped up to the mic. at the exact moment they started harmonizing "rain", as if on cue, an incredible downpour started. biggest drops i think i have ever saw. BUCKETS of rain. the dead made it happen. it was sick. intense. 3 more rain songs followed and then terrapin station with a killer jam to follow. the rest of the show was great as well and encoring with the first ( and last ) GLORIA since 9-18-93 MSG. what a treat. this quality is pretty good for being in the ocean of rain that was dumped on us. i recomend it to any and everyone. truly one of the last great dead shows. check it out to get the full effect, play it in a shower with multiple shower heads, or jump in your pool and blast it while your under the water. seriously hot rain show. great aud quality. on another note, i was one bad thing happen at this show. during LL rain i went to seek cover from the storm and went up on phils side under the overhang. about midway through LL rain something happened. i herd a scream and saw a body fall past me. at first i thought, nah. no way. then i got up and looked down and it seems that a girl fell off the top level and went straight down to the top of the first level. it made it a little hard to concentrate on the rest of the show and i am curious if anyone out there knows about this, or even if that girl is ok now. i was partying with someone from NJ i think and we both saw it happen.if anyone knows anything about this horrible accident please throw up a line on here.

But don't forget: The idea is NOT to base your review on what it was like to be at the show.
I don't care what color Jerry's shirt was, or how hard the rain fell, because I CAN'T HEAR THAT ON THE TAPE.
We are reviewing based on THE QUALITY OF THE RECORDING -- the only criteria that is really relevant to other users of this site -- and this show just isn't that special.
The Rain tunes are a nice novelty and the sound ain't too bad, but there are 1,000 Dead shows that stuck to the tape better than this one.
Get any of those first; they're not hard to find.

Subject: Rain....I don't mind!
This may not be the best show of '95 but it's right up there. Things got hot with the West LA and Candyman and only continued to soar all the way through the Gloria encore. It actually was not a rainy day at all until set break. Right before they busted out 'Rain' I remember a huge thunder crackle with some intense lightning. Just seconds later the boys busted into Rain, almost as if waiting for that moment, and from that point it was on! The 'Rain' set is always welcome and this was a fine second set (although I'm partial to Deer Creek 7/20/94 with the rain tunes followed by a HC Sunshine and smokin' Corrina>Matilda. Anyway...). And everyone there will never forget Jerry with purple shirt and singing a heartfelt SOTM with his hair blowing in the cool summer breeze.

Well worth the pickup as an example of what the Dead could still be late into '95. This was not 'the tour from hell' yet as everyone still looked blissfully forward to Deer Creek. I'll break the tie and give it a solid 4 stars.
Reviewer: Imercator - favoritefavoritefavorite - July 2, 2004
Subject: Not the best show of '95
This is a good '95 show, but definitely not as good as some of the shows earlier in the year. Perhaps one of the better summer shows, not that that is saying much. This show is certainly worth having non the less, if not just for the second set Rain quartet, and the crowd's reaction to it. This recording is a little under average for an AUD, with quite a bit of stadium echo. But I for one kind of like that. You could do a lot worse than download this one!
